"Very good. easy to make. Great treat for the colder weather. Pretty sweet. I think next time I'll try it with 1/2 dark or bittersweet chocolate. Cinnamon was not obvious, nice subtle flavor."

"I recall making these brownies when they were first featured in Taste of Home! My adjustments were as follows: I'd used 1/4 cup boiling water. For dry ingredients, I'd used 1/2 tsp. salt along with the other dry ingredients. I'd greased and floured my baking pan used! These brownies were really good! Thank you for sharing with Taste of Home! delowenstein"

"I'm the cook, my girlfriend usually bakes but I tried these out and they were pretty easy. I used a k-cup from my Keurig for the coffee. Used a French Vanilla one and it was good. Don't really know if made any difference but they were good."

"I didn't think it had too much chocolate, but I did think it was too "cakey" and not as moist as other brownies."
